and efficient and effective government. the budget will help promote a path to energy security by increasing opportunities to expand production of america's abundant energy resources and this budget will stop the unfair use of funding from hard- working americans. as a job creator and a cpa, i have seen firsthand how domestic american energy production can be a valuable component in creating jobs and fixing our nation's balance. the u.s. has combined recoverable and natural gas, oil, and coal and that is the largest in the earth, larger than russia, saudi arabia, or china. today, the united states is known as the saudi arabia of natural gas. the chart on the screen, if we can bring it up, illustrates how we can bring revenues by hundreds of billions of dollars by not enacting punitive taxes and by expanding exploration for energy on federal lands and oceans. the loss potential is also $200 billion. you could say there is a trillion dollar gap between the two numbers. this administration wastefully invests in corporate welfare programs like solyndra. solynda has several brothers and sisters.
today and actually create good job energy is a really good place to start. greenlight the key stone pipeline. with one stroke of the pen the president could create thousands of jobs. i represent southeast louisiana. there are a lot of opportunities to create tens of thousands of good high-paying jobs in the energy industry where not will you create high school jobs, a high school graduate could make over 55,000, but you bring in treasury revenue that will reduce our deficit. you allow our country to become energy independent so we don't have to buy so much oil from middle eastern countries who don't like us. we'll see in the next few beeks if the president is serious with working with us. >> where did the president say i agree with you? >> i specifically mentioned to the president on spending and the president kind of famously said he is going to close the white house to tours and school groups can't go into the white house. and i said instead of these kind of things instead of closing off the white house and threatening to lay off food inspectors how about working with us on real s
to the president if you want to start today and creating jobs, energy is a really good place to start. pen the stroke of the president could create 25,000 jobs. and look at the outer continental shelf, there are a lot of opportunities to create tens of thousands of good, high- paying jobs in the energy industry were not only do you , but youally good jobs also bring in treasury revenue that will reduce the deficit. you allow the country to become energy independent so we do not have to buy so many -- so much oil from the eastern countries that do not like us. we will see in the next few weeks if the president is serious about working with us. >> where did the president say i agree with you, let's do that? >> i specifically mentioned to the president on spending. he came as we said he will close the white house to tours. i said instead of these kinds of things of closing of the white house and threatening to lay off food inspectors, how about working with us on real specific ways that his own agency has identified as real waste in government? instead of laying off food inspectors, work with
thought there was a lot of enthusiasm and energy. i did have a concern. the republican party is embracing a philosophy of libertarianism with rand paul. i like what rand paul has to say. i think he's a nice guy and a good senator. it is concerning that we are becoming like libertarian groups, very antiwar, militant peacenik types. i don't feel like the conservative movement should be going in that direction. i certainly feel a little bit more negative about that, but overall, i think it is important that we had energy and enthusiasm despite a terrible year last time. more positives than negatives. democrats line, kyle in phoenix, arizona. caller: it was amazing to me. it's so clear to me that the republican party hasn't learned anything from the last election, and they are just the whole narrative further to the right. we're going to push away moderates. it's not a winning strategy for them. it's amazing that they keep getting lunatics up there like whatever her name was emma the was,y inflammatory one -- the really inflammatory one, and coulter. -- anne coulter. host: what did you think
.4%. the energy and work force committee had a hearing on it today. i am hopeful they will come forward with legislation that will allow it to return to controlled by its critics and their parents. -- by studtents and their parents. i yield back. >> thank you. i appreciate some of the earlier comments. as we go through this debate, i want to make one thing clear -- the number one threat to young america is this president's terrible economy. as we go court, we need to remember there is one fact we cannot escape -- as we go forward, we need to remember there is one fact the cannot escape -- over half of recent college graduates are unemployed or underemployed as a result of those policies. another great threat to the young people in this country is the national debt we are piling on them every year. does pass the bill out of this chamber, most voted for it -- we just passed a bill out of this chamber, most voted for it. as others have said, we need to get politicians out of the business of setting interest rates. some laughed when it was said earlier but history shows that when the market
are going to choose an energy future that doesn't just look at the energy source of the past but also looks at the energy sources of tomorrow. and addresses climate change in a serious way. and, you know, some people remarked that, you know, i looked -- had a little more pep in my step in the inauguration and the state of the union, and i have to tell you, it wasn't because i was off the campaign trail because nothing energizes me interacting with the american people day in and day out. the reason is i felt like this was a vision, if we can get it implemented, really would allow america to take off. our economy is recovering. it is resilient. but it not yet where it need to be. we've got millions of people who are still out of work or underemployed. we've still got businesses that could be thriving if we're able to make sure washington doesn't engage in self-induced crises. we'll have a lot of work to do. let's face it, there's still a lot of divisions and arguments here in washington. doing our h we are very west to reach out to the other side, and i think there's a genuine desire on the p
point that if you expend more energy than you bring in, you die, whether you are a business, person, or country. the person who ignores that is against science. in the long run, a country that spends more than it raises cannot continue. it is a threat to this country. it is a threat to our economy. common sense confirms it. any belief in science tells me to believe that there is no bigger problem. [bell] >> let me quote the cheney who said ronald reagan taught us deficits do not matter. dick cheney was wrong. he is wrong then and he is wrong now. deficits matter. anyone who supported the bush has no business talking about debt. [booing] i helped bill clinton balanced the budget and built a surplus because we had good economic times. good economic times should pay down the deficit as clinton did but to reagan and bush did not. in bad times you have to stimulate and the airtime as president obama is doing. it is like listening to lectures on hygiene from type 40 -- typhoid mary. is more important to america's pursuit of happiness? which is more dangerous to america's pursuit of happin
economy than how we use american energy. after years of talking about it, we are poised to take control of our energy future. we produce more oil that we have in 15 years. we import less oil than we had in 20 years. we have doubled the amount of renewable energy that we generate from wind and solar. tens of thousands of good jobs to show for it. we are producing more natural gas than we have before that hundreds of thousands of good jobs to show for it. we have supported the first new nuclear power plant in america since the 1970s. we are sending less carbon pollution in the environment and e have in nearly 20 years. we are making progress across the board. it is possible in part because of labs like this and outstanding scientists like many of you -- entrepreneurs, innovators -- all of you are working together to take your discoveries and turn it into a business. think about this. a few years ago, the american auto industry was latlining. thanks to discoveries made right here at argonne, some of the most high tech, fuel-efficient, pretty spiffy cars in the world are once again designed
thing with a small manufacturing company. they have manufacturing and it provides energy supplies to companies all of the world. one big request is some kind of stability in our tax code. we have the highest tax rate for businesses in the world. it makes it difficult for businesses to complete globally. we live in a global economy but we ignore global realities of where we are in our tax code. it is important we fix that. it is important we fix our code not just to grab more revenue from the american people, but to increase american economic activity. we lose track of the fact that this year is now forecast to be the highest amount of revenue coming into the federal treasury in history. no other year receiving more money into the treasury than this year. this is a moment for us to look seriously at our spending. let's look at families and family owned businesses. >> next, i would like to yield to wisconsin to talk about how the budget is designed to provide upward mobility and give the states the tools they need to craft these programs to help those closest to them in need. >> tha
. the energy to power an american renaissance is right below our feet. west virginia is blessed with abundant natural resources, and more than that, an army of great men and women willing to extract it. pursuing environmental policy is based on unproven science is the wrong path -- policies based on unproven science is the wrong path. [applause]finally, at home i'm working to empower students by detailing the bureaucracy that has prohibited positive education reform for decades. revitalization is predicated on leadership. the societal problems dragging our country down are not new. they are magnified during economic downturn. as conservatives, we have to lead by example. my mother always told me, you can't stop through legislation. it has to come from the heart. the westery day in virginia legislature to impart the tenets of servitude as him to everyone who has been tasked to lead my great state. you'd be surprised how much have in common with people, even when they're on the other side of the aisle. west virginia is on the verge of greatness, and america can see a rebirth of prosperity. cons
of the house energy action team, i understand how important this project is to our nation and to my home state of montana. let me be clear, this project means jobs for montanans. this project could directly create more than 800 good-paying jobs in montana and thousands more across the nation. it means coming one step closer to north american energy independence. the keystone x.l. will be able to move up to 830,000 barrels of oil per day. that's about half the amount that the u.s. presently imports from the middle east. and of that oil moved each day, 100,000 barrels will come from the bacan formation which suspends across montana and north dakota. this isn't about politics. republicans and democrats alike support the pipeline. this is about our nation's security. this is about lowering energy costs for american families. this is about american jobs. enough is enough. we can't afford to wait any longer. it's been 1,636 days. it's time for president obama to approve the keystone x.l. pipeline. thank you and i yield back my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields back his time. the ch

the facts take energy, with our new drilling technology, america will soon have managing surplus. .- energy surplus this is trillions of dollars in new wealth for americans. trillions of dollars. a foreign-policy not overly influenced by oil. how about food? america will be the saudi arabia of grain in a century when the world is clamoring for more food. just as crude oil determines the wealth and power of nations in the latter part of the last century, we will do so in the -- this century. wireless can -- rapid advances are transformed at a breathtaking pace. wereacturing jobs that shipped to china a decade ago are now returning to america. this time, the work is being performed by our robots. the good news is, there are robots built in america by american workers. by low energy cost, they create a new wave of energy manufacturing in this country. classes of diseases are on the verge of being eradicated by manipulating individual molecules on the surfaces of living sales. -- living cells. never getting lost, never having accidents, already a prototype car has driven more than 3000 miles in
the importance of growth. i just came from a hearing in the energy subcommittee of energy and commerce. we were fortunate enough to hear from the -- one of the members of the railroad commission in texas. the railroad commission doesn't have anything to do with trains any more, it has to do with energy. the commissioner from texas was at the committee hearing and i asked him a question, i said in the ryan budget that we will hear about tomorrow, there is an estimate of $11 billion over the next 10 years that will be paid to the federal government because of development of oil and natural gas on federal land. i said i'm from texas. that number seems a little bit light to me. i would expect the amount of revenue produced on federal lands from oil and gas production, assuming we don't legislate it out of existence through the environmental protection agency, he said in texas the two-year budget figure for oil and goes coverage taxes is $7 billion. well, that would be a significantly greater amount than the $11 billion estimated in the ryan budget. i asked mr. ryan about this last night at the rule

by the energy, the creativity, the sky's-the-limit approach. i visited microsoft, facebook, an apple, and each of these companies have different approaches, but they can teach us about modernizing as conservatives. my goal is to bring a little silicon valley to capitol hill. [applause] that is why i am excited to work to make sure we use technology in effective ways. one thing i have learned from these companies and these innovators is that technology alone does not make great products. great products begin with people -- eager, creative, hard- working people, great products, and great public policy begin when you search for ways to make life better, and remove the burdens that stop people from connecting. that must be our goal as conservatives. we cannot allow the democrats to continue to define us as only rich, out of touch, old- fashioned, exclusive. what kind of party is going to win elections in the future? it is going to be the party of the 100% -- one that includes all of us, men and women, every wrong on that economic ladder and every bloodline -- every rung on the economic ladder. it
between having a good education and getting a job. secondly, we need a national energy policy to ensure that we have clean and inexpensive energy across the long-term. if you look at the history of successful economies, the two most important numbers are the cost of money and the cost of energy. third, we have to reform our immigration system and, fourth, we have to invest in our infrastructure. to do these things requires investments. and we will fundamentally not be able to make these investments unless we, as i said, reform our entitlement programs and raise revenues. we're confronted with two choices in our budgets. and these are insufficient choices. the american people deserve better. on one hand we have a choice where we don't recognize the reality of where the entitlement programs are going. and then the other choice is we slash and cut the critical investments we need to make to have a future. we can do better. each party likes to take the high ground on a balanced approach. but what does that really mean? to me a balanced approach means several things. first, we need additiona
and help people out. the call.k you for another focus on the economy is an energy stored inside "new also looking at the economic impact of the ethanol program. the president focusing on energy in his weekly address. >> over the past four years as a part of all of the above energy strategy we made steps to soften the blow by using -- by making sure cars use less gas. by the middle of the next decade our cars will go twice as far on a gallon of gas. the average family will save over $8,000 at the pump. the only way we are going to break this cycle of spiking gas prices is to shift our cars and trucks off of oil for good. that is why at my state of the union address i called up for congress to set up an energy security trust to fund research into new technologies that will help us reach that goal. is drawn fromergy the lands and water that we as a public altogether. i propose to take some of our oil and gas revenues from public lands and put it towards research that will benefit the public so we can support american ingenuity without adding a dime to our deficit. we are designing new engine
in the gulf is the trade of energy between the gulf and asia. as we talk about burden sharing, what is the world for partnerships, while the country's already close allies and countries which are not allies, but which are relying on an energy from the gulf? should we be thinking about that differently in the budget context you have described? >> that is the argument you here. like 27like this -- things the united states can achieve a level of independence. why would we continue to be concerned about the energy that flows out of the gulf? my answer to that is i did not go to the gulf in 1991 and stayed there for about the next 20 years because of oil. that is not why i went, not what my children wet. we went there because we thought that a region of the war where we had not -- except for a few bilateral relationships, where we had not invested in me -- much of our band with in intellectual energy, commitment -- we went there in 1991 because of the-- because aggression of hussain, but we went there because the future of the region was typed our future, and not too distant, oil, but ra
to strike because we live in a global economy. beyond that we need to have pro-growth energy policies, including oil and natural gas. our regulation, our regulations have to be the product of a cost-benefit analysis. the government is trying to help the business community. in america business fields like government is their impediment, their competitor, their enemy. that has to stop. our monetary policy cannot be used to i flat things and distort our economy. the list goes on and on. we know about tax policy. we need to have a pro-growth tax structure, not one that takes from some and gives to others. and last but not least, we believe in solving our debt problem, because it's hurting job creation. jobs are not being created in america. there are jobs that are not being created in this country because we have a $16.5 trillion debt and it's only scheduled to get bigger. that problem has to be solved and you can only solve it, the only real approach that solves it is the combination of fiscal discipline and rapid economic combrothe. there is no tax increase in the world that will solve
states. it is one terrific country. there is enormous energy in this country, where people want to get a job and go to work and businesses want to grow and hire people. all of that is waiting for congress to get its act together, to get this sequestration out of the way, austerity budget, 750,000 jobs to be lost. get that out of the way. look at a balanced proposal and end tax loopholes, make some cuts, make wise, thoughtful cuts. it can be done and should be done. along the way, we can grow the economy. we can once again make it in america. because when we make things in america, when we use our tax money to buy american-made equipment and supplies, we are creating jobs and putting people back to work. george washington said it. alexander hamilton said we ought to do it. and we the democrats said we ought to do this and ought to buy american. mr. rahall, the ranking member of the transportation and infrastructure committee made it clear as a part of the new transportation bill, there's going to be a major make it in america component so we are buying american-made goods once again and

"washington journal" is live on c-span everyday at 7:00 a.m. eastern. >> when it comes to the secretary of state and the people around her, what i found striking is her ability to stay focused. at all times as much as possible on what is happening. she does not get distracted by the details if they are not important. she has an ability to stay focused on the big picture. how is what is happening in afghanistan impacting what they are doing in the middle east? how was that impacting what they are trying to do in asia? she had a sense of the strategy. she is surrounded by people helping her. she has staff to allow her -- i talk about that. that allows her to focus on what matters. she does not have to worry about lunch. it was just arr

after it conceded that it had helped iran conduct energy exports the acquisition of billions of dollars of gold. what is your assessment of what would happen to iran's fiscal and economic situation if these nine countries were not exempt from the u.s. sanctioned policy? >> what i can tell you is that the overall iranian oil that is being exported is down considerably. there were workarounds within the exceptions made for those who reduced over time. that is a constant evaluation and consideration. but the actual amount of iranian oil being exported is down. it is probably -- i probably reserve on the exact quantity for close session. >> i suggest that there needs to be much more transparency in order for us to make a judgment on whether or not doing such sweeping exemptions is wise policy. mr. brennan, i want to quickly touch on cyber security since you and i have worked extremely closely on that issue last year when senator lieberman and i repeatedly tried to get our comprehensive bill through. i had real reservations about the president issuing an executive order. i think it sends the

like education, the ability to attend college, research and development and clean energy, these are the keys to economic growth and opportunity. do not hand the keys to the republicans in congress because they will throw them out. experts predict this budget will result in 2 million fewer american jobs next year alone. that is on top of the 750,000 jobs lost due american families and businesses are feeling the headwinds in this economic recovery. unemployment remains acceptable he high. -- unacceptably high. here are a few examples. this republican budget slashes ability of students to attend college. it eliminates pell grants for students and provides a harsh squeeze for millions more. the key to a good job and opportunity is that college degree. but republicans turned a blind eye to the fact that college costs continues to escalate. they will say hell grants -- pe ll much harder to come by in america. research strings under the ru republican project. this includes alzheimer's, cancer, and aides. we rely on those dollars for jobs at the ke diversity and research and busi
in areas where we need investment. why not shift those tax credits and benefits to a new energy economy? building a good grid. creating jobs by doing it, by incentivizing business. yes, let's work with business, but incentivizing these companies to do something that will not only create jobs and opportunities for folks. so i do get your point that you ponied up $600 billion. it's a sacrifice for people who are -- 1%, small 1% in our country, but there have been $2.5 trillion taken out of the economy. you look at somebody like chairman bernanke, he says that one policy option is not equal to another. so if we slash and burn and cut unemployment insurance, for example, as a way of cutting the budget, that that has a dill tearous impact on our -- dilatorious impact on our income versus taking a few more dollars from the wealthiest people. host: brooklyn, new york, alice on the democrats line, hello. caller: thank you. i'd like to say, paul ryan before, i don't -- don't hang up i want to be able to say he sounds like he was running still for vice president. he lost. he's a congressman. that
. the local county is consenting and ready to negotiate with the department of energy. in advance of yucca mountain even receiving its first delivery, we will work with the state, nye county and surrounding communities to provide incentives to benefit the people of nevada and their communities. we will address infrastructure needs, providing additional groundwater monitoring, build rail spurs, providing benefits outside of the yucca mountain project. as we look to make nuclear processing viable in the future, we can establish research dollars to our universities in the state to be loords in this field, and -- leaders in this field, and we will best fit their needs. this will mean thousands of direct or indirect jobs throughout nevada. before even of these incentives are discussed, we know the project will yield 2,500 direct jobs on its own for more than 25 years under the current permit. even after 50 years as the project winds down there would still mean more than 500 direct jobs. construction of a rail spur could require an additional 1,000 workers and 300 permanent jobs for decades to c
. particularly on the issues that she knew a lot about, which in alaska, are energy and the environment. and so when i got back, after that, i decided i would write a story about her. i mean, i heard a little bit about her. you don't hear much about alaska politics down here, for heaven's sake. she had run against the incumbent governor, republican, had defeated in the primarily then won the election in 2006 which was not a good republican year, but alaska is a pretty republican state and she won. so there she was in 2007. so i came back. i interviewed a bunch of people by phone and talked to her twice. i interviewed her twice on the phone and wrote a piece for "the weekly standard" about sarah palin. it was the first piece written about her in the national magazine in the united states. i don't go around bragging that i discovered her. >> the reason i ask you about this is here's "the weekly standard" magazine. this is a recent issue. most weeks, how many pages? 36 or so. >> 36 or 40. >> when did you know that column might have had an impact, led eventually to john mccain choosing her as vice
a failing bankrupt solar energy company. and so for the rest of them, these hardworking americans, they want an opportunity and they want a main street economy that if they work hard and they play by the rules, every american can succeed. finally, the people i represent , they believe it's just immoral, immoral to saddle our children with these trillions of dollars of debt. that's why i'm proud to support both the republican study committee budget and the republican budget. they'll bring us a vibrant economy with a whole new tax code which is fairer, flatter, simpler and more competitive, a budget that is guaranteed to grow jobs and paychecks. contrary to the democrat budget, no tax increases on nobody. we quit spending money we don't have, and i know my democratic colleague is very sensitive about the balance issue, because they have a budget which never balances. the american people demand one. the republican study committee and the house republican budget deliver it for a fairer economy, for a balanced budget, for a greater future for our children. we need to support these republican budg
ignores the obvious point that if you expend more energy than you bring in, you die, whether a business, person, or country. the person who ignores that is against science. in the long run, a country that spends more than it raises cannot continue. it is an existential threat to our country. that was established by economist after economist. common sense confirms it. the federal debt, there's a bigger problem. >> let me quote dick cheney, who said ronald reagan taught us that deficits do not matter. dick cheney was wrong. he was wrong then and now. of course deficits matter, but any one of you who supported the bush plans has no right to speak. i helped bill clinton balance the budget and build a surplus. why? because we had good economic times. in good economic times, you pay down the deficit, but reagan and bush did not, and in bad you have to stimulate in the near term, as thank god president obama is doing. we democrats will balance the budget once again. >> paul, which is more important to america's pursuit of happiness -- which is more dangerous, excuse me, than a 357 magnum -- >>
to the unfair and inaccurate attack on a clean energy company that's located in my home state of nevada. the republican proposal refers to the solar reserve project as an ill-fate adventure. had he done his home work, budget committee chairman ryan would have discovered that this cutting edge solar project is not ill-fated but instead has long-term contract with our state's largest utility, it has created 450 good-paying jobs for nevadans and it's running on schedule and underbudget. the assertions being made in the republican budget undermine the success of renewable energy programs, the jobs they create and the investment they represent and our nation's future energy needs. in las vegas and across the country, americans have made it clear that our budget should be a path forward for a strong middle class and serious investment in the next generation of americans. let's reject these mathematical gimmicks and unstub staveragiated attacks and -- unsubstantiated attacks and get to work on a real budget. thank you and i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: for what purpose does the gentlem
energy stores that we have here so we can be energy independent. we have vast amounts of energy reserves we need to tap so we can put people to work, bring down gas prices, stretch paychecks further. we've got to control our spending appetite. we've got to reform programs like medicare so they're solvent. we've got to reform our safety net so it works to get people on their feet. that's what this budget does. in a nutshell, instead of spending $46 trillion over the next 10 years, as we're currently poised to spend, we spend $41 trillion. instead of growing spending 5% a year we grow at 3.4% a year. with all the predictions of doom and gloom and how evil and terrible and horrible or budget is, it increases spending every year by 3.4% a year instead of 5% a year. the difference is we balance the budget. the difference is we let families keep more of their own take-home pay. the difference is we make sure our kids inherit a debt-free future. the difference is we do what's necessary to create a healthy economy, more take-home pay, faster economic growth and better jobs. that's why we're here

in the area of domestic energy production that will lead to more jobs, that will lead to more energy independence for america. these are the kinds of things that we look to in april, mr. speaker, and i would tell the gentleman again, look forward to working with him in an open process, in a bipartisan fashion. i yield back. mr. hoyer: i thank the gentleman. now, we'll be ending now, but i know you have an extraordinarily able assistant sitting to your right who advises you on issues of great importance to our country. the gentleman to my right does the same thing for me. the gentleman to my right went to wake forest. maryland played wake forest last night. and i hope as we play duke tonight that we are equally successful, mr. nevins, who is a graduate of duke, it will be a little tougher game than wake forest, i understand, but we look forward to trying to be successful in that effort. kyle nevins is a wonderful member of the majority leader's staff. he worked for my dear and close friend, roy blunt, for some period of time, and he began working for mr. cantor in 2008 as his floor di

and research, clean energy and housing. budgets should be designed to grow our economy and get people back to work. this republican budget does not reflect the values of our great nation. it will hurt our economy and it will hurt the american people. it says as yogi beara said, deja vu all over again. more tax breaks for the richest americans, big subsidies for big oil, tax subsidies to companies that ship jobs overseas at the expense of the middle class and working poor. our federal budget should honor the commitments we have made to our seniors, but this republican proposal would end the medicare guarantee as we know it, shifting rising health care costs to seniors. we should be educating our next leaders to enter the workplace successfully and making meaningful investments in rebuilding our crumbling infrastructure, bridges, rods and schools and put people back to work in jobs that help support families. but this budget makes deep cuts in rebuilding america and in education. according to the center for american progress, the republican budget proposal on the floor today would cut $1.2 t
